An Open Letter to LOVE

Dear Psyche,
     When I look at you I see Love.
     When I think of you, my face glows as a smile appears, my heart feels warm and my body tingles all over.
     You’re the first thing I see in the morning and the last one I tuck in at night.
     With me through good times and bad; you’ve helped me heal from wounds which pierced psychically deep into my flesh and seared my soul.
     You’ve helped me love and appreciate every fiber of my being. My body is covered in blessings -- every mark or scar has a special meaning; those wrinkles and frown lines representing shared moments of intimacy and ecstasy, as well as wisdom learned.
     You've shared my confidences, moments of triumph, and held me close during times of despair, wiping away my tears and smoothing the hairs away from my brow.
     You’ve helped me accept who I am and where my life is and encourage me to bigger and greater future successes.
     You’ve never abandoned me and yet, I haven’t always appreciated the contributions you bring into my life.
     I’ve been remiss in writing those heartfelt missives expressing my deepest thoughts, so I’ll just tell you the easiest way I know how… I LOVE YOU.

LOVE, me

I truly LOVE appreciate how incredible life has become once I opened up and allowed for a special relationship with myself. I get great joy in passing this along and thought it was an appropriate time to send a reminder to take time to stand in front of a mirror and say “I LOVE YOU” to your psyche.  

Even though you live and breathe in your body, it’s easy to forget what an important and integral part of your being your psyche is. Life is speeding up all around, yet who you are – the most innate part of the self – is often the last part that we take stock of. Most of you lead busy lives, filled with obligations and responsibilities. Between the family, career, education, friends and whatever else shows up during the day, you’re beat. When night falls and it’s finally time to get off the merry-go-round, you’re probably tired, with very little energy to spend on yourself.  
The constant assault of deplorable news, culture issues and global upheaval barrages you with negative energy which only drains and weakens you. Even those of you who make determined effort to lessen exposure to such incidents are still involuntarily assaulted. No wonder, so many people are stressed out and having ongoing difficulties processing the paradigm shift we are going through.

Rather than letting life just happen to you, take some bold action and change how you perceive your life.  The world as we knew it is gone.  We as a people are evolving and everything around us is in constant flux. You owe it to yourself to do what you can to take care of the physical vessel you were born into and to treat it with LOVE, kindness, dignity and respect. 

So I’m asking you to take a few minutes every day and make a new pact with your psyche, to feel LOVE, fulfillment and encouragement.  Fall in LOVE again and get started on the path to living authentically. 

Great changes start with small actions. The first small action you can take is to give LOVE and be LOVE….
